This comic follows a short story of Hera and Chopper on a mission to do some good in the galaxy. Its a fun little story of them going to the Fekunda Outpost to help free up the population from the grip of the Empire. While reading this comic I can
just hear Chopper’s beeps and boops in my head, just like you hear from the cartoon itself. It’s a pretty amazing effect when you brain can do that for you. Disney and IDW did a great job on this comic.
IDW has been knocking it’s comic series out of the park with their Star Wars comics. In my opinion they are giving
Marvel a run for their money. I get it the IDW comics tend to be more kid friendly and frankly are essentially aimed for the younger audiences. This is Disney’s way of getting the younger generation that didn’t grow up on Star Wars into in fact STAR WARS. GENIUS!!! The stories with the IDW comics are really simple, easy to follow, and typically wrap up in one issue. The artwork is amazing, simply amazing. The colors hold true to being bright and wonderful. It is really an easy pleasing view for the eye.
IDW is keeping it simple with just a couple variants on their releases which is nice to the wallet.
It looks like there might be a
couple more options out there for
covers after looking in the front cover. So we will have to see what pops up out there in the comic shop world.
This is a quick read to be honest but well worth it.
Overall I give this issue a 10/10.
You get a fun story and your kids get a cool life lesson to take home.
Go and pick this comic up today.
